Decadent Chocolate Sauce Recipe #LoveWeek

Valentine’s Day is T minus five days away. It’s #LoveWeek on Jade Louise Designs! Every recipe I share this week was given to me or inspired by someone I love.


Today’s love-recipe is inspired by my friend Cicely. She and I have been friends since 8th grade choir. I don’t want to age myself or anything, but that was over 17 years ago!

Doesn’t she have the most amazing crystalline eyes you’ve ever seen? When I look at these pictures, I think of the twists and turns our lives have taken over the years. But no matter the time or distance, she’s always remained very dear to my heart.

Last summer, my darling friend came to stay with me and she threw me the best 30th birthday party a girl could ask for. A-MAZE-ing food, outdoor yoga, cooking lessons, hiking in the rain. It was blissful.Decadent chocolate sauce, great for dipping fruit!

One of the gifts my yogi master left behind was her dark, decadent chocolate sauce recipe. This rich, creamy sauce is insanely easy and very versatile. It’s not light and sweet. It’s deep and dark and mouthwatering.

I use Ghirardelli chocolate chips because I can pronounce all the ingredients on the package and I love their rich flavor the best.

Decadent Chocolate Sauce

Decadent Chocolate Sauce

A rich creamy sauce that can be used for dipping, spreading, frosting, or pastry filling.


  • Decadent Chocolate Sauce
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 12 oz pkg Semi Sweet chocolate chips


  1. Combine cream and honey, bring to a boil stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla. Let it cool.
  2. Store in fridge and use within one week.


Use it to spread on croissants. Dip strawberries in it. Frost a cake or brownies with it. Fill crepes with it. Use it as a chocolate fondue centerpiece. Swirl it in some plain Greek yogurt and top with raspberries. Top it on a dish of your favorite ice cream. Fill puff pastries with it. Use it as a ganache on gourmet cupcakes.

Decadent chocolate sauce, made from only 5 ingredients! It's mouthwatering.

Seriously. The possibilities reach as far as your imagination. My imagination takes me to my silverware drawer. Specifically, the spoons. I shoo my kids out of the kitchen, then eat the chocolate sauce by the spoonful.

Rich, creamy chocolate sauce

The sauce is creamy, but it will set up in the fridge. If you dip fruit in it, it won’t drip off, but it won’t harden into a candy shell.

Store it in your fridge for a week. Like it’ll last that long.

Try this out, but make sure you plan to share. It makes a lot of sauce and you may not want it in your fridge, taunting you. I’m barely tuning it out right now as I type.

What was your favorite idea for this chocolate sauce?
